*Liam's Wild Ride*

Hey everyone. I made it safely to Barcelona and have been really busy the last two weeks making contacts and having a good time. This is kind of an online journal for me so that you Barfers can see what's going on in my life right now. To recap; I moved to Barcelona from Sunnyvale to try and get a job in Grand Prix, hopefully with a MotoGP team. Some of these pictures aren't moto related, but the whole adventure is so bear with me.

I flew via KLM, a dutch airline. As far as I can tell, Dutch is the most difficult languange I've ever heard. Upon arriving at SFO I was told that my two suitcases were too heavy. They were each 100 pounds and I was forced to run around like a maniac looking for another suitcase or bag to buy. I finally found a guy selling boxes and bags and managed to get a cheap bag for only twenty bucks! Here I am with all my belongings open on the floor as I rearrange the load.

I couldn't sleep a wink on the flight so I watched movies. I watched the Last Samurai and a couple other flicks that I can't remember now. I sat next to this guy from Nigeria named Moramaramadingdong, but he said it was pronounced Albert.

Had a sandwich on the plane from Amsterdam to Barcelona. This was a little tough since I had to leave my girlfriend behind in California and her name is Tram.

I arrived in BCN two hours late and immediately noticed the Moto Ad at the airport. These signs are everywhere in the cities.

Dropped off my bags at my new apt. and met my three roomates. My room is about 8x8". Literally. If I stand in the center I can lean side to side and touch the walls. This is my new roomate Mario, from Madrid. We went for a long walk and ended up at the waterfront while there was a luxury yacht show going on.

Made it back to the apartment in the evening and I was exhausted. We had a special guest over for dinner and some playstation and it was none other than Hiro Aoyama, Movistar 250cc rider and recently finishing the championship in fourth place after the race at Valencia!

We hit it off right away, since I can say bad words in Japanese and we both like rice. I took this as a good sign since I came here to get a job in GP and here I was on my first night meeting a rider.

I was so tired that I spent most of Friday (Oct. 28th) sleeping. I woke up in the afternoon to learn that we were headed to Salou to watch the RACC Catalunya Rally Race! I'd never been to a race like that so I was totally game. Movistar was the title sponsor of the race so I was a guest of theirs once again. Mad props to my friends at Movistar for hooking me up!

The Race was run from the parking lot of a giant amusement park called PortAdventura. It was very strange but the buffet was off the hook. Here's the coporate mascot - look familiar?

He's lying to you! I know him! That's Prince Jeff! He e-mailed me last night... I even have the e-mail to prove it:

My name is Prince Jeff Sannoussi, I am the first son of Late Zainoul AbidineSanoussi. Until hisdeath, my father was the former foreign Affairs Minister of my country (Guinea-Conakry). Before I go into further details please be informed that I am writing without any other persons pre-knowledge of my contacting you, Therefore I will appreciate same attitude to be maintained all through Days before the death of my father herevealed to me about a deposit of a trunk box which he deposited with my name in a private security company in Accra,Ghana for security reasons, although he registered the contents as precious stones but the real content of these trunk box is the sum of USD42M (FortyTwo Million United States of American Dollars) which was his share from a secret sale of Diamond when he was in the office, he could not deposit this funds in a financial institution for fears of the funds being confiscated.

After the burial of my father, I made frantic effort on the best way to handle this money.
I sought advice from an attorney who advised that I must seek for a trust-worthy foreign business partner. However, I sincerely ask for your assistance to get this Funds out of this country, and your share for assisting us will be 15% of the total sum, 5% will be use for upsetting all the expenses incurred in the course of concluding this venture and the remaining 80% that will be for me and my family The consignment will be released within seven 7 days of my being in receipt of your reply via my email address and I want to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free In case you have any question do not hesitate to contact me as I wait for your swift and favorable response to my email.

This is Rocio, one of Nacho's co-workers, and she speaks with a British accent, having studied in England for a year. Dinner was amazing and we overlooked a small pond with a waterfall in the background. The sounds were soothing and the photo doesn't do the place justice. Salou is about an hour outside of Barcelona, and there are cool villages in the mountains to visit.
